  • Hello!! I am Cyberpower678. I am an administrator on Wikipedia. Despite that, I'm still your run of the mill user here on Wikipedia.
  • I specialize in bot work and tools, but I lurk around RfPP, AfD, AIV, and AN/I, as well as RfA. If you have any questions in those areas, please feel free to ask. :-)
  • I also serve as a mailing list moderator and account creator over at the Account Creation Center. If you have any questions regarding an account I created for you, or the process itself, feel free to email the WP:ACC team or me personally.
  • At current I have helped to create accounts for 2512 different users and renamed 793 other users.
  • Disputes or discussions that appear to have ended or is disputed will be archived.

All the best.—cyberpower

RFPP|ar substitutes to "archive now", which doesn't yet trigger archival, at WP:RFPPEdit

I think this is related to Wikipedia:Requests for page protection/Increase, that for some reason is redirecting users to request protections there. (CC) Tbhotch 22:26, 16 July 2021 (UTC)
Hi Tbhotch, yeah, that was the result of the 2019 discussion at WT:RFPP, which is finally being implemented – but the substitution of RFPP|ar is currently not interpreted by the bot. ~ ToBeFree (talk) 11:27, 17 July 2021 (UTC)


Bad template linksEdit

I just made this change to fix links to Template:Admin_dashboard/Button_edit and many others. Unfortunately, relative links don't work when the page is transcluded elsewhere. I don't know if this will have any impact on your bot. Thanks! Plastikspork ―Œ(talk) 18:04, 17 July 2021 (UTC)

Oh. Sorry, Plastikspork, my fault. I wasn't aware of this issue and hadn't thought about possible effects of the recursive transclusion. We'll need to wait for Cyberpower678 to restore your change, as the bot overwrites it automatically with a revision I had incorrectly declared "ready to be enforced". ~ ToBeFree (talk) 15:10, 18 July 2021 (UTC)
~ ToBeFree, no problem, but hopefully this will be fixed soon? Thanks! Plastikspork ―Œ(talk) 23:51, 19 July 2021 (UTC)

Typo on WP:RPP and gap in archiveEdit

The last section linking to the archive index ends with double curly apostrophes instead of double quotation marks. An attempt to correct this was automatically reverted by Cyberbot I (talk · contribs).

A historical archive of previous protection requests can be found at Wikipedia:Requests for page protection/Archive.’’

Also, the archive for October 2013 is missing. –LaundryPizza03 (d) 18:59, 17 July 2021 (UTC)

Thank you very much! Interestingly, this seems to have been fixed. Can you confirm, LaundryPizza03? ~ ToBeFree (talk) 15:13, 18 July 2021 (UTC)
Ah, the archive page is still missing, though. I'll mark this section as "don't archive yet". The missing archive page may be a factual representation of an empty log for whatever reason; I'll need to look this up. ~ ToBeFree (talk) 15:15, 18 July 2021 (UTC)
The typo is indeed fixed now. –LaundryPizza03 (d) 15:17, 18 July 2021 (UTC)
LaundryPizza03, I’m more of a silent operator these days. I silently fix problems reported to me. :-) —CYBERPOWER (Around) 15:29, 18 July 2021 (UTC)

RPP clerking bug reportEdit

The bot removed an RPP request, but failed to move it to the appropriate subpage, here. –LaundryPizza03 (d) 00:19, 19 July 2021 (UTC)

Similar issue here: [1][2]. It looks like the bot should be shut off for this task for the time being. Regards, HaeB (talk) 11:15, 19 July 2021 (UTC)
Hi LaundryPizza03 and HaeB, I guess the ideal solution would be fixing https://github.com/wikimedia-gadgets/twinkle/issues/1429 , for which a patch already exists. I have no idea how to push this to happen faster, however. ~ ToBeFree (talk) 13:29, 19 July 2021 (UTC)
@ToBeFree: Thanks for this context about Twinkle, but I don't think it can be blamed here. Rather, the core issue seems to be a malfunctioning of Cyberbot I (a bot should never accidentally delete editor comments), admittedly triggered by the rollout of the RPP changes before phase 3 of your technical roadmap was completed. The bot should be shut off for this task until that issue is remedied. Regards, HaeB (talk) 21:14, 19 July 2021 (UTC)
The rollout of the page changes was part of the roadmap, phase 2. Updating the tools to use the new pages had to be done after creating the pages. ~ ToBeFree (talk) 21:18, 19 July 2021 (UTC)
